THE new Playa Flamenca de Orihuela school has won a prestigious Alicante province architectural prize.
It has been named best design in the public works category of the awards organised by FOPA.
Designed by architect Alfredo Paya, it has a built area of 9,117m2 plus 14,786 m2 of outdoor spaces.
The award description said: “This is a building that responds to an extensive and repetitive school program with the difficulties that are typical of this type of public work, and yet is capable of creating an extraordinarily rich space, an internal landscape itself that is abstracted from an unattractive environment.
“It is a contemporary, innovative and surprising response in the field of school architecture, which is sometimes limited to conventional and closed solutions.”
In second place by a narrow margin of votes was “Variante Ferroviaria de la Linea 1 del TRAM” (Serra Grossa tunnel).
